Peach Mango, Jalapeno Ale, and new tap system at Wishful Acres Farm & Brewery!

We promised!  Last fall, we promised all of you, that we'd make another batch of Jalapeno Ale to spice up things when we were in the dead of winter.  After the weather the last few weeks, with the worst of winter here, we're ready to say "Spice Off, Winter"!  Jalapeno Ale is back on tap starting this weekend!  A golden wheat beer aged with fresh jalapeno peppers, this beer smells & tastes like fresh peppers, and features a slightly spicy flavor!  

Also on tap starting this weekend, our most popular fruit beer, Peach Mango Ale!  We just couldn't have the Jalapeno on tap without the Peach Mango, because so many of you enjoy mixing the two together.  Peach Mango is also a wheat beer, made with real fruit, and features a slightly sweet, fruity flavor.  6% ABV. 

Lastly, you've watched our taproom work-in-progress for the past couple of months, and now phase 1 is complete!  Our brand-new tap system will be up & running starting this weekend, which will now allow us to have more beers on tap - 12 on tap at once (11 of our craft beers + our root beer)!!!  This is 4 more than before!  Also, our bar is now flipped around on the other wall!  :)

Wishful Acres Farm & Brewery - taproom open Fridays 4-9, Saturdays 1-8, Sundays 1-5.
